As a mom, an educator, and a wife, I have a lot of things to keep track of. I did a pretty good job over the years, but I never felt like I had a concrete way of keeping up with it all. Everything was always spread around between different calendars, sticky notes, and apps, so it was hard to remember where everything was.
A friend at work showed me her bullet journal a few years ago, and I was really intrigued by the idea of it, so I started doing some research. Now, I’m completely hooked.Continue reading “Getting Organized with a Bullet Journal”

Whether it’s anchor charts, lesson plans, flyers, or newsletters home, teachers are always creating. It’s easy to pull up a document and type something up, but it doesn’t necessarily look pretty or polished.

Save your money. With Canva, you’ll be churning out gorgeous content in no time. Heck, you could probably even sell it on TPT!Continue reading “Create Gorgeous Graphics With Canva”
At some point, you’ve probably had a website that you’ve needed to share with your students, but it was way too long to have them type it in. Let’s face it–it’s hard enough getting kids to type in Google.com, let alone something that’s 100 characters long. You’d blow your entire lesson just waiting for them to type it in! That’s where a URL shortener comes in. It takes that long, ugly address and reduces it to something short and memorable.Continue reading “URL Shorteners and QR Codes”
